and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one
accomplished for the very -- to the various speakers from michelle obama and the headliners, michelle obama and bill clinton joe biden, barack obama and a lot of the secondary speakers. mission accomplished. they also had to -- at the same time, while they were at it, sort of a secondary goal is make sure the people understood what lies they had heard in tampa and what the truth really was. i think that mission was accomplished as well. so huge success i believe in getting the message out. they were really focused. they were really on message. when it comes to the speakers, you know, the evening the major speakers were all there between 10:00 and 11:00 east coast time. 7:00 to 8:00 on the west coast. but there were -- the secondary speakers, it was funny. each night, there was sort of one person that blew the place up and really lit the place up. and became an instant star. the first night was duvall patrick, governor of massachusetts. the night after him so wednesday night was congressman emmanuel clever from maryland and l

(laughter) she came out and talked about the president's character, their life together, their children. meow, meow, meow. (laughter) i'm not going to get into a lot of details about her speech because it was very good. (laughter) jim? >> the first lady absolutely delivering here on everybody note. >> as you heard her delivery it was just masterful. >> i think this was... i think the speech of the convention. >> she knocked this house down. >> michelle obama's speech i thought was a brilliant speech, brilliantly delivered. but i didn't buy a line of it. (laughter). >> stephen: yes. brilliant speech, brilliantly delivered, but i don't buy a line of it. jimmy? cut me off a line of it. >> barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants... (cheers and applause) ... everyone in this country, everyone to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from or where what we look like or who we love. you see,
a convention where do you start, right? >> tuesday night michelle obama knocks it out of the park and absolutely electrifies the crowd. wednesday it gets better and by wednesday morning, the people were just pumped. >> stephanie: yeah, it's not just that we have the policies -- that are better for women, we presented i don't know how many amazing awesome women. that's the best thing you can do is show what awesome women are like including jennifer grandholm. let's hear line of the night. >> now sure sure mitt romney loves our lakes and our trees. he loves our car so much they even had their own elevator. [ laughter ] >> but the people who design and build and sell those cars well in romney's world, the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft! [ cheers and applause ] >> stephanie: okay. by the way -- in fact every day we feature someone who gets it done on the "stephanie miller show." jennifer grandholm got done last night. brought to you by granger who gets things done. >> she electrified that crowd. and that's what we needed. i talked to so many people
of this convention? >> when you're able to start with michelle obama and give bill clinton an opportunity to lay it out and then be able to give a ring side perspective like my dad did, that's what it was all about. michelle, bill clinton and then barack obama, that's, the convention was phenomenal. >> is he comfortable playing bad cop sometimes? i was surprised at the bin laden -- >> he was. the reality is he wants to make, to give the american people the perspective of what the president does every day. to make sure average americans are taken care of and that they have a foundation to build a better future and that's what last night was about. given the decision, the single biggest decision in his administration, going after and taking out bin laden. that's what last night was about. >> were you surprised, i mean, did you guys look at what romney did on that thursday night, the lack of mention of afghanistan and was more add it last night to talk about national security than maybe a week ago? >> i don't know, but i'm confidence the president would talk about veterans any way. i'm confidence m
on the democratic national convention. first lady michelle obama's big opening night address set a high bar for all who followed. >> barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. he wants everyone in this country, everyone to have the same opportunity. >> mitt romney quite simply doesn't get it. >> the republican argument against the president re-election was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hasn't cleaned it up fast enough. >> america is not in decline. i've got news for governor romney and congressman ryan, gentlemen, never, ever, it never makes sense, it's never been a good bet to bet against the american people. >> as i stand here tonight, i have never been more hopeful about america. not because i think i have all the answers, not because i'm naive about the magnitude of our challenges. i'm hopeful because of you. >> joining us for the post script this friday special edition senior reporter for "newsweek," andrew romano. a number of republicans had to admit when you look at those speeches, it was unmatched when you put th
will listen to first lady michelle obama. joe biden speaking earlier working to humanize and personalize this story much the way michelle did for barack obama earlier this week. we heard as well from illinois senator dick durbin, he introduced the nation to a pretty obscure illinois state senator barack obama relatively unknown back in 2008. vice president biden talked a bit about barack obama of course but what i thought was quite emotional as he said we talked about his life and dr. jill by then pointed to him and she said that it took her five times before she would marry him and that he was the love of her life. a huge cheer went up here all lot of emotion when it gabby gifford said recited the pledge of allegiance. everyone seems to be crying. i looked in the handicapped area and people were cheering for her as she walked across the stage and recited the pledge of allegiance escorted by her friend the democratic chairwoman. incredible emotion in this room and there certainly playing on a motion a great deal tonight. husbands speaking of the love for their wives and joe biden talking
clinton had to say. bill clinton hit a home run, michelle obama hit a home run. now it's barack obama to carry it forward. he can't get by with a ground ruled double tonight. he these hit a home run. i mean, they've set a bar that is that high. i mean, there have been two exceptional nights, michelle obama and bill clinton. and while david and i were quite admiring ofoverno christie in tampa, there was nobody at the republican event that established anything to the same standard, i think, that barack obama needs to do. >> ifill: the republican campaign officials told me that the first night with michelle obama was supposed to be about heart and values and the second night was the prosecution and what's tonight supposed to be about with the president? >> i hope it's about the future. it better be. as you say, we know about what's in him, we saw the argument against the republicans, i went back and read the speech this morning and when i was looking for what the future was going to be, there was nothing. there was one sentence. so that better be what this is about. a candidate for offic
of suffers, i'm afraid, it suffers by comparison both to bill clinton's speech and michelle obama's speech but also to the two speeches we remember most from the past two conventions where barack obama did world historical barn burners in 2008 and 2004. >> world historical barn burners. eamon, i want to ask you, we talked a lot about we are talking about bumps and sort of the net-net for the president and the democrats coming out of the dnc. the jobs numbers that we got this morning are not great ones. the fact that the unemployment rate has ticked down is of course good but there are mitigating factors there. tell us what you think the effect is on the labor scene as it affects the president going into the final stretch before november. >> well, no doubt about it, this was a lousy jobs number. i'm kind of a silver lining kind of guy and i always look for the silver linings. i can't really find one here. 96,000 new jobs created might sound like a lot, but that's below expectations of about 125,000, and remember, you need to add about 100,000 to 120,000 just to tread water to keep up with p
, michelle obama, joe biden, the president, last. i thought joe biden was a much better speech and seemed to have the audience going with it. >> and speaking of vice president biden, joe trippi is going to be here, he tweeted vice president biden was the best of both convention autos i don't think this is a among his best. i think he's given many better speeches and i think this speech is being weighed down by the income bensy itself by the fact he's been doing it four years, it's something he tried to use as his advantage. particularly on national security. and there is the fact he's made a similar call to arms four years ago. people know promises haven't been kept. >> and did he give any indication or explanation as to why that doesn't happen? >> no. i think that there is a little bit of that. and there is a little bit about congress but i don't there is a full accounting of why things fell flat for a lot of the promises and why things didn't work out quite like he hoped it would and people listening he hochs things have gotten better. >> there is rhetoric about how long it's going to t
with the military people. and in talking about veterans and jobs, the work of michelle obama and jill biden, he's bridged this international and domestic divide in ways -- >> i think you're right. the idea of the first lady and dr. biden, the second lady if you will, making a point of almost like in a civil war setting. that women taking an interest in mostly guys are getting injured badly or killed. and being out there and addressing them as individuals that are important years after the battle. >> and that is what's so unpleasant, distasteful if you will, about romney's reply on fox. when he -- imagine you're a troop in afghanistan. you know, it's 110 degrees. you're walking around with a pack and a weapon. imagine you have a loved one who is. and you hear him or her referred to as a laundry list. that's a dehumanizing of what these people are doing. to romney it's just another issue. i don't need to deal with this issue in this speech. it's not a laundry list. it's human beings. >> i like to think -- i remember this story of a super bowl game. i'm watching the pilots go over when they do it.
, ann romney was an asset. michelle obama, who was polarizing in the first campaign, she said a few things, she probably didn't mean them the way they came across, but at one point she said i've never been more proud about my country. she has redeemed herself. republicans concede this point with her work with military families. >> i think both of these women had a job and i don't know why it's always the woman's job to humanize the husband. but be that as it may. but they had to kind of lift the veil, if you will, talk about who their husbands really are as the chief character witness, which wives are. >> they also talked about the choices that they have. they also talked about making sure that you don't slam the door behind you. when you moved up to the next rung of laer of success and we're all in this together. michelle obama especially, the first lady talked about an appeal to moms across the country. >> i thought they were both terrific. they're both a great credit to their husbands and families and to their country. are we ending on a point of consensus? i think we are. thank
talking points and in talking about veterans in jobs, the the work of michelle obama and jill biden, he's bridged this divide in a way. >> dr. biden, the second lady, if you will, make iing a point almost in a civil war setting that women, taking an interest in mostly guys are getting injured badly, they're killed and being out and addressing them as individuals that are important, years after the battle. >> and that is what's so unpleasant if you will about romney's reply on fox. in afghanistan, it's 110 degrees, walking around with a pack and weapon or imagine you have a loved one who is and you hear him or hear referred to as a laundry list. that's a dehumanizing of what these people are doing. but to romney, it's just another issue. i don't need to deal with that issue in this speech. it's not a laundry list. it's human beings. >> i remember the story, super bowl game and i'm watching the pilots come over and they see the guy in the cockpit and it strikes you that we all should remember that at any moment right now, no matter what time of the day, there are people on post in places
accused of making threatening remarks against first lady michelle obama, will he have a day in court? up next, appear update on that case. >>> a horrible accident caught on camera. it left a state troop are injured. we are checking more headlines when we come back. -- it left a state trooper injured. [ romney ] this president can ask us to be patient. tthis president can tell us it was someone else's fault. but this president cannot tell us that you're better off today than when he took office. [ female announcer ] here in virginia, we're not better off under president obama. his defense cuts threaten over one hundred thirty thousand jobs, lowering home values, putting families at risk. the romney plan? tax cuts for middle class families. north american energy independence. create over three hundred forty thousand new jobs for virginia. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. . >>> trooper david avila was standing on the shoulder after i apolice stop in june when a tractor-trailer driving too close to the shoulder hit his cruiser and then hit him. he suffered injuries to
obama and why he should be given another shot at this. michele obama presented a very personal story. we are going to talk to a congressman who had a story more than 24 hours ago. peter barnes on the floor of the democratic national convention. reporter: neil, one of the goals of the obama campaign is to try to reach across generations and we are doing that right here on the north carolina delegation. a few seats down from me, an older delegate wearing what looks to be an original top hat for john f. kennedy, caroline kennedy's uncle. the campaign, of course, trying to appeal to seniors as well as younger voters and middle-aged voters across all the ages. big decisions over the next few years. he is going to say that he wants more time and needs more time. the truth is it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. including creating another million manufacturing jobs by 2016. neil: since it took a while to turn this ship around, you will hear a lot of references to do a job come back up 20 months. a lot of this will go into about a year af
. [cheers] no one could tell it as well as michelle obama, as you did last night, on monday night. i know him from a different perspective. i know him and i want to show you the character of a leader who had what it took when the american people stood on the brink of a new depression. a leader who has what it takes to lead us over the next four years to the future as great as our people. i want to take you inside the white house to see the president as i see him every day. i didn't see him and sound bites. i walked 30 paces down the hall and i see him. i watch him in action. four years ago, the middle class was already losing ground and then the bottom fell out. the financial crisis hit piece sledgehammer. all the people i grew up with. you remember the headlines. you saw some in the previews. highlight, highest job losses in 60 years. headlines, economy on the brink. it's plummet -- markets plummeted worldwide. he knew he had not only to restore the confidence of a nation but he had to restore the confidence of the whole world. [cheers] and he also knew that one false move could bring a
, i would say romney, obama that was sort of a tie but the clinton speech was excellent. the michelle obama was excellent. i think if you take the two conventions, you look at a party, you have doubts about the republicans now. and the republican convention looks worse in retrospect because i'd say that because they did not champion and make a case for all the policies that have been seriously attacked here. given a week i would give a slight advantage to the democrats. >> mark. >> the democrats won desitessively the first two nights and the third night as well. disaifd's right the republicans are going to pay a price for a content-free convention. basically a content-free. this was not content-free. >> ifill: back to washington richard norton smith, without it falling on how, how did it look. >> a confetti free assessment. i would agree with david. i don't think we saw anything new or revealing about the president tonight but what we did see revealed tonight was the democratic strategy. up until now the assumption has been that this is an election, a referendum upon the performance
the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa
out? >> that is impossible. michelle obama was terrific. bill clinton last night laid out such wonderful ways. he takes complex issues and crystallizes them. in one word. all the republicans do not understand arithmetic. we need to get the deficit down, and you do it the way the president is talking about. it was a great lineup. >> the chair of the democratic party. let's move it down. you just turned 18 years old, and you are the and its delegate. what has it been like you? >> -- you are the youngest delegate. hasn't been like you? >> i am the youngest in pennsylvania. it has been so much fun. i have met so many people from my hometown and where i go to school, so it has been inspirational, awesome. i am so excited to be here. >> what did you hear from the president tonight? >> beyond inspiration, i heard truth, facts, something a lot of people did not get to hear at the rnc. i heard that is not what we got to hear from mitt romney. i heard a true inspirational story it from the president that was so it refreshing. it is so easy to relate to him. he maybe 50 something yea
as expensive. the president said it is okay if it is twice as expensive. >> from facebook, i love michelle obama's line there is no such thing as us and them. are you kidding me? people like that. >> it is not left verses right or republican verses democrat is the ruling elite versus the people. >> that is why i like it when kennedy said what do you mean by we? >> we've need people who think like. that diversity of thought makes our country great. >> coming up i will tell you what obama should have said john: the administrations announced the new campaign theme is forward. foreword to what? bankruptcy? surf bum? the last election he campaigned on the slogan nds we can but now the enthusiast created the bumper sticker yes we did. that is catchy. what did they do that makes them proud? we did increase military spending so now we're not another 4 trillion in debt. we did continue the pointless war on drugs and here it is. yes we did pass much more regulation. not as much as bullish but obama cost more. we know how thousands of pages of new rules you have to obey. this will buy groped you? the
first lady michelle obama. the officer was accused of threatening the first lady in july. police chief lanier says her department is looking at the issue. >> our internal affairs is handling an administrative investigation. >> reporter: do you consider it poor judgment or potential threat? >> can't comment yet. >> the unnamed officer is still working while the investigation continues. >>> police released a new clue trying to track down a gunman who robbed two people inside a church saturday. that's the suspect there in the video running across the street following a man inside st. stephen's church in northwest and held up the victims moments later. fox 5's karen gray houston has the story. >> reporter: st. stephen and the incarnation episcopal church on newton street in northwest is an activist congregation known for its good works. >> it has a great tradition and history of helping others selflessly. >> reporter: located in a historic district it's a diverse church housing a homeless ministry and other assistance programs. civil rights r
before and michelle obama. we heard some very good speeches at that convention, and barack obama's was not the best speech, but it was a good enough speech. >> and maria, talk about a little bit about how he talked that you are the change. you are the ones who changed everything. he put it back on people. was that effective that point? >> i do, suzanne, and i think that it was effective, because it had not been something that we have heard from him before and i agree with ana in that there is no way to compare the speech last night to the one he either did in 2004 or 2008. 2008 was lightning in a bottle, and they know that they could not have tried to recreate that, and what he tried to do was pragmatic and poetic poetry, and he was pragmatic, because he asked people to take ownership with him of the hope and change and in doing that, he sort of was kennediesque saying, we are in this together, and it is not that we should not ask how to do it alone, but how we can do it together. it was a change on the famous kennedy line and i also think that he was humble, and he taed about th
saw that through effective speeches by michelle obama, the first lady, and bill clinton giving a rousing delivery the night before. obama was tasked with presenting what the next four years of his -- the white house would look like. but he didn't offer us enough specifics, i would say. he talked a lot about offering more manufacturing jobs, which is important of course, and investing in education and energy and infrastructure. but we didn't really hear anything new. instead he kind of offered a vision for the country and outlined how his vision competed with romney. and that was to say we -- we know times are tough. we know americans are struggling but stick with us. we have a firm grasp on this and we can take this in the right direction. now whether that sticks is uncertain and we've seen several polls show that the majority of americans feel like the country is headed the wrong direction. i think the question going forward is does that message resonate with those people concerned about the direction of the country and do they have time to wait and hang on? >> the message las
with it tonight, at the moment, michelle obama is there with her mother in the front row. that's the best seat in the house. the worst seat in the house is section 201. you could not get any further from the stage, top row, 201. at 4:00 today, section 201 was filled, five hours ago. that's how long the delegates and supporters have been waiting for these big speeches tonight. we are reaching a boiling point. remember, this was expected to be an outdoor event. so the delegates inside had tickets on tuesday night and wednesday night. that's how they gained access to the proceedings tonight. as for the other 40,000 tickets, they are simply out of luck after the venue was cancelled. one reminder, 2008, stage right, there is a barack obama picture, it looks like the campaign of 2008 with the four-letter word hope beneath it. it may be a reminder of paul ryan's sharp comment in tampa just a week ago. by the way, the weather was the big reason they said it was moved inside. tonight in charlotte, it is partly cloudy. 78 degrees. and no rain in sight. bret and megyn, back to you. >> let's bring the pan
, give a speech flowing enough in poetry but rooted enough and public policy. starting with michelle obama before the him, and bill clinton himself and his vintage form, i think obama took the baton and ran the last leg and did so with oratorical flourish. >> it certainly is not the sports like assessment that i just heard from the good doctor. we have been saying for some time obama is not the lesser of evils, but the more effective evil. we base that on his record and on his rhetoric at the convention. we prefer to talk about what history making events have gone down under his presidency. first of all, he has created a model for austerity a veritable model with his deficit reduction commission. his introduced preventive detention, a law for preventive detention and expanded drone wars and made an unremitting assault. i think possibly the biggest impact to his presidency, and not talking about all of this like an eerie stuff from the convention, but probably what will go down as his biggest contribution to history is a kind of merging of the banks and the state with $16 trillion bei
the convention on tuesday night you had michelle obama reintroduce the president as a husband and loving father. then you had big dawg bill clinton come out and present his record and then president obama came out and laid out his vision. i have one pundit correction to make. i predicted that john kerry giving a speech would be a mistake. i was totally wrong. he nailed it too and fulfilled his role as well. >> cenk: absolutely. senator kerry's speech was in some ways devastating. we'll get to that. and let me add what i got wrong. i didn't think the president would take on climate change, and he did. it's not a joke and it was great to see. nancy, they wanted to build on their lead with women voters. do you think they did a great job doing that? >> absolutely. they knocked it out of the park. after watching the last two weeks of the convention we know what this is about, it's the vagina stupid. this is another year of the women but with a twist. never have we seen this kind of--this issue this fundamental issue for women about our freedom to decide when and if we have kids the control over our
>>> tonight the main event here in charlotte. after powerful warm-ups from michelle obama. >> we must work like never before. >> and bill clinton, just last night. >> you must reelect president barack obama. >> tonight joe biden leads off and then the president makes his case for re-election. 3 f2 >> aquÍ estÁ brian williams. the primetime address by president obama and the beginning really of the final push, when americans wake up tomorrow morning, this election is suddenly 60 days away. now, as you know, the president's surrogates from the first lady to former president bill clinton have laid the groundwork for tonight and shortly we'll hear from vice president joe biden and then, of course, president barack obama. we were not supposed to be in here tonight. we were supposed to be across town in the football stadium. you see it there live, for what was supposed to be an outdoor celebration for upwards of 65,000 people, but the risk of rough weather was too great. it came through here late this afternoon. as of tonight, you can second guess this all evening. jim cantore, where
, government versus private sector. and we heard michelle obama talking about student loans and you have to be propped up to get back in the game. and republicans have a different view on the role of government. and this is striking how different they are. >> and and in this situation, i thought the message is that government is not a theme. >> that is right. you have a challenge there are government scandals and gsa and others, fast and furious darrell issa is investigating. and there is obama making the case, we'll listen. government has a role ask can help people. i can't. that is the message he said. i will embrace obama care. it show that's i care. republicans saying we can get a big speech. let's hear results. that is what is going to be, i think the focus in october. >> it's interesting how this republicans have backed democrats in this particular issue. is that where the democrats have to defend the government. >> yes. >> they, so every thing that ever happened to you by the government is that always now, it's like, you know, you're supposed to like the government. it's sort of a
thought michelle obama was fantastic. and some people are suggesting that biden was even better. >> bob: i thought biden's speech was remarkably good. i think he made one or two mistakes in it. i was wrong. i thought obama would do, what is it again? mea culpa. which he did not do. >> kimberly: you promised us that. >> bob: i was wrong, and i admit it. but the thing about people dropping out of the workforce, remember that we're at the peak years coming up in the baby-boom generation and prim retiring. it has a lot to do with it. >> dana: but they don't want to retire. >> eric: this is the lost participant -- the population is increasing. >> bob: i want to say something. >> kimberly: where are you going? >> bob: that is ridiculous. >> eric: we are opposite. you wear a tie, i don't. you're liberal, i'm not. i wear -- -- i'm normal, you are not. >> dana: you're both so incredibly good looking. >> bob: can i make a point? gallup came out today and showed for the first time obama is now over 50%. since the bin laden. it's been how many months? 17 months. he did get a bounce out of the conventi
or a michelle obama where someone who comes from modest means who has difficult situations growing up can aspire to be president. are we going to continue to be that country or be a country where the rich get richer and the poor stay poor? to me that is the essence of this campaign. and i think the president connected with the core of american values in that speech last night. >> david, we also saw he did not surrender the theme of hope and change. he kind of interpreted how it is the more mature concept and is something hope and change does not mean something dashing and immediate. let me show you where he talked about his hopefulness for america last night. >> i'm no longer just candidate. i'm the president. while i'm very proud of what we've achieved together, i'm far more mindful of my own failings. knowing exactly what lincoln meant when he said i've been driven to my knees many times by the overwhelming conviction that i had no place else to go. but as i stand here tonight, i have never been more hopeful about america. not because i think i have all the answers, not because i'm naive about
